Sweet Moments with Rhonda

Greetings to you and happy Saturday!

It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you and share a project.  Today I have used the gray papers from our Alton and Antique Garden collections along with some chipboard from the Baggage Claim collection.

Sweet Moments (12x12 Page)

I started by using Midnight Confessions and stamping it using a coffee ring stamp, then a splatter stamp. The top trim was done using triangle strips that I layered together.  Next, I cut the banner, then matted my photo to it.

I had a kraft heart that I added, then inked with Coal Miner to coordinate with my page.  I also used my PowderPuff Chalk Inks on my craft mat, spritzed some water and then splattered onto my page.

This was a free style page that just came together so easily by mixing and matching the lines.  I love how the PowderPuff Chalk Inks add so much to a project!

Welcome to Alicia O'Bryant!

We are so excited to continue introducing to you some of our new members of the 2015 Design Team!

Today we welcome Alicia O'Bryant!

Hi, I am Alicia O'Bryant, a mother and wife who also works full time. I have been crafty since childhood.

I owned a jewelry crafting business for over 20 years and have been paper crafting for almost as long. I enjoy the city of life of Cincinnati, Ohio where I have lived for 18 years. My son attends the School for Creative and Performing Arts downtown. Work, school, restaurants and shops are in such proximity I can go for weeks without even getting on the freeway. 

With that said, my family and I enjoy travel very much and love discovering kitschy and exotic places which make for some great scrapbook pages. I love to create cards and mixed media projects as well. I can't wait to create with Quick Quotes!

Thanks so much for stopping on over today!

Welcome to Marcia Lucia Gomez!

We are so excited to continue to introduce to you some of our new members of the 2015 Design Team this week!

Welcome to Marcia Lucia Gómez!

Hi, I'm Martha Lucia Gómez, I am from Colombia, but now I live in Doral, Florida. My first language is Spanish, which is why when you visit my blog, you will see it is written in Spanish; but don't worry, I have a translate button.

I studied Social Communications and Journalism, but I've loved crafts ever since I was a kid. Once upon a time I used to work with metal jewelry, but one day I discovered stamps, ink and paper, and I was hooked; now it is my passion. I continue working in my profession, but at the same time I work on my blog and in various Design Teams; I can definitely conclude that working with paper crafts is the best therapy.

I live with my husband and our two daughters and I divide my time between my family, my work in a Public Relations Company and my passion: stamping and crafting. I love to create cards, 3D´s and alter different projects. I am looking forward to working with the Quick Quotes Design Team and sharing my passion with all of you!


I am so excited to be part of the Design Team of Quick Quotes during this year! I am pretty sure that together we will spend the most wonderful time building our memories. Today I want to share a quick card that I made when I was exploring my first DT package. I decided to use the Quick Quotes CELEBRATE Paper Collection.


To create the base of my card I used Concord Crush and White Card Stock. The third layer is the focus of my card. I am falling in love with these decorated papers! So here are the main instructions for this layer.


 All the products that I use in my card can be found in the Quick Quotes Store. 

I hope my card inspired you and please come and visit us for get more ideas that you can make as soon as you want.

Welcome to Connie Mercer!

We are so excited to begin to introduce to you some of our new members of the 2015 Design Team!
Welcome to Connie Mercer!
I am a wife and a mom. I am also “Nini” to six beautiful “grands”. I have been scrapbooking for over fourteen years and I know I will never tire of it. I hope to never lose the thrill of pretty paper and vintage goodies!
 I live on a ranch in the Texas hill country with my hubby and all of our deer, cows and armadillos. Most of my inspiration comes from the “grands”, but also from the wonder of nature that surrounds me every day. Living on a ranch has enabled me to capture unique photos that I am able to share with my family and friends. I also love to go junkin', so you never know what I will come up with when I find cool old stuff..
I am so excited to be working with Quick Quotes!!!

January Club Q with Donna!

Hi everyone! Donna here with another layout using pieces from the January Club Q kits.

This is my grandson and his first time out it the snow. From his great big smile you can tell he loved it! I love the light blue and the deep purple colors look so awesome together.

Using all the different sizes of snowflakes in the kit I went to work and layered them, I also used PowderPuff Chalk Inks and clear embossing powder to add a bit of shimmer to the snowflakes, then topped them with the bling that was in the kit to finish it off.

Today is a Perfect Day!

Hello and welcome! Susie here to sharing a tag I created using a mix of products from Quick Quotes!

Lately I have become obsessed with tags. I much prefer making them to cards and they serve the same purpose. I think this would look great on a birthday present!

The background tag is cut from Sheer Joy 700 and the edges are inked with Mango Mai Tai PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I am sure you recognize those fabulous graphic circles from Dream Big collection!

I backed the largest circle with a black doily and then placed the sentiment, which came from the Sheer Joy Diecut Sticker sheet, in the center on pop dots to give it some dimension.

I colored the stamped image with PowderPuff  Chalking Inks.  I used Blue Moon for her dress and Feather Gray for her hair - so she would look like me!

The strip journaling on the tag is cut from the Serendipity Words and Phrases Strip.  I inked the edges with Midnight Confessions.

I added a few bits and pieces from my stash to finish it off.

Quick Quotes Supplies:
Dream Big collection

Die-Namites "Spring Doily" Die
Clock Faces
Card Stock

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!
